Welsummer chickens are a captivating breed renowned for their distinct attributes, with a particular emphasis on their exceptional egg characteristics. Originating from the Netherlands, these medium-sized birds exhibit a striking appearance, boasting rich chestnut-brown feathers adorned with intricate black speckles that create a partridge-like pattern, instantly setting them apart.


While their plumage is eye-catching, it's their eggs that truly make Welsummers exceptional. These birds possess a remarkable ability to produce eggs with a deep, russet-brown hue, often likened to the warm tones of terracotta. However, what truly captures the imagination is the intricate speckling that decorates the eggshells. The speckles tend to be darker, forming intricate and mesmerizing patterns that seem to tell a story across the surface of the shell, adding to their allure. One thing to note, each egg is unique speckled patterned. Some will be more bold and others more subtle. All chicks hatched will have the ability to lay incredibly speckled eggs! 


Appreciated by egg enthusiasts and poultry aficionados alike, these eggs with their unique coloration and speckled charm hold a special place in the realm of poultry. Alongside their remarkable egg qualities, Welsummer chickens exhibit an amiable temperament, making them a welcome addition to diverse poultry settings, from small-scale farms to backyard flocks. By seamlessly blending aesthetic appeal with utilitarian egg production, Welsummers stand out as an exceptional choice for those seeking to add gorgeous speckled eggs to their baskets. 

Please read our chick disclosure PRIOR to ordering. 


​SHIPPING LIVE CHICKS: Shipping is $60 for express delivery. This is the cost from the post office for 1-2 day shipping, and packaging. It is expensive, but we do not set this price. THIS IS NOT INCLUDED IN THE PRICE OF THE CHICKS!!! 

Chicks can only be shipped via USPS the same day they hatch. Your local post office will call you when they arrive. They will be less than 72 hours old. Newly hatched chicks ingest the yolk before they hatch, which gives them enough nourishment to survive the shipment. But we do add Gro Gel to give them a boost of nutrients inside the shipping box. 

It is your responsibility to pick up the chicks from the post office. Sometimes when they call it will show up on caller ID as "Unknown" or "Restricted".  It is important that you mark your calendar when you place your order. We will not issue a refund if you forget to pick up your order. 

​We place extra chicks in each box to help fulfill the total count that you ordered, in the event of any loss during travel. We do not re-ship chicks if there has been a loss. A new order must be placed.

If a loss occurs during shipment, our policy requires that you notify us within 2 hours of arrival. If you fail to message us within that time frame there is nothing we can do. 

Please provide us a total count of ALL birds received, a LIVE count and a DECEASED count. Pictures of deceased chicks is REQUIRED. We do not resend chicks, but we will reimburse the cost of the dead chick. We do try to include extras and if extras are included, and there are deceased birds, a refund will not be given on extras. (EXAMPLE: you receive 12 chicks, and one is dead, a refund will not be given because the purchase is for 10 chicks. Anything over 10 is not refundable). We add extras to offset potential fatalities. 

There are NO cancellations, changes or refunds on chicks. Payment is accepted at the time of the sale. Orders are shipped out as available (or when discussed). Because we are dealing with animals and nature, the orders will be fulfilled in the order they were placed

​If you have questions about these shipping policies, please contact us BEFORE placing any orders.

If you do not agree with any of our policies, please purchase elsewhere.

Our policies are firm no matter the circumstance. 

​At Clutch of Color we strive to be honest, however as a running farm business, we have strict bio-security protocols in place to prevent against the transference of outside flocks to our own. THEREFORE, WE CANNOT ACCEPT RETURNS OR EXCHANGES ON ANY POULTRY OR EGG PURCHASE. 

​Nothing can return to our property once it has left. 

​We spend lots of time with all of our chickens throughout the day, so we are always aware if one becomes sick. We immediately separate any ill chicks or chickens from the rest of our flock. Each time a chicken is held, we check it for lice, mites and the overall health of the chicken. 

​Please note that with shipping chicks, it is common for a chick to pass away without any known symptoms. It is up to the customer to inspect the chicks, however, there are many things that can cause a young chick to pass. It's nothing you did wrong as the caretaker and nothing we did wrong as the hatchery. Please be mindful of this. If you message us and need help, we are here for you! If you send nasty messages and are hateful for things that are out of our control, please do not order from us. Shipping chicks is affective; however, the postal service is out of our control.
